Hotel, post office were central part of Cherryville’s history

Thursday, September 24, 2015 by ED PANYCURATOR, ATLAS CEMENT COMPANY MEMORIAL MUSEUM in Columns

Today I’m up at the Route 248 intersection in Cherryville, taking a last historical look before the Turkey Hill expansion takes place. My interest is concentrated on two historic buildings.

One is the old Cherryville Hotel, which dates to 1767, before the American Revolution. I had the privilege to visit the old hotel when Ms. Betty Seidel operated a well-known gift shop there. You may have read the series, which I wrote a number of years ago.
